Welcome to the course web page for PHIL 230 at UBC-Vancouver with Christina Hendricks.

Course description:

This course will focus on three types of moral theories: virtue ethics, consequentialism and deontology. We will read historical (e.g., Aristotle, Mill and Kant) and contemporary texts on all of these theories. There will also be discussion of the ethics of care and moral relativism. Assessment will be based largely on writing assignments, including blog posts, essays (for which you will give and receive peer feedback), and exams with essay questions.
